Are you looking for jigsaw puzzle boards?
Jigsaw Puzzle Boards are one of the best ways to avoid the frustration of lack of space for putting together a large jigsaw puzzle and the dreaded thought of losing a piece of your jigsaw puzzle just when you thought that your whole puzzle was complete.
How frustrating is that?
I love doing large jigsaw puzzles, as a matter of fact I love doing just about any type of jigsaw puzzle but the one major problem I had with assembling a jigsaw puzzle was the lack of space.
I used to use my dinning room table as a puzzle table but anytime that we would have company over for dinner I would have to put the jigsaw puzzle away and hopefully in doing that I was always worried that in the process I would unintentionally lose a few jigsaw pieces.
My husband suggested that I put down a large niece of rigid cardboard so that when we have company I could just move the cardboard with the partially assembled jigsaw puzzle to our bedroom.
Well, that idea worked fine when someone was around to help move the cardboard.
The problem was on the rare occasion that I had to try and move my jigsaw puzzle on my make shift board ended up disastrous.
Jigsaw puzzle pieces all over the floor after my puppies decided it was time to play since I had been standing up anyways.
As you can imagine my disappointment when the next time I decided to work on the same puzzle a few of the pieces had gone missing.
I was telling a friend this story and had here totally in tears from laughing so hard and she suggested that it might be a wise idea to borrow her new puzzle board.
Wow, what a Great Invention! 🙂
It helped to keep my jigsaw puzzle together and made it a snap to pack it away when I wasn’t working on it.
So after that I was sold on getting my own jigsaw puzzle boards if I was to continue with this hobby.
Needless to say many years later I now have a few jigsaw puzzle boards of my own.
It has totally made my jigsaw puzzle hobby a wee bit less frustrating.
As usual I always try and research products before I go out and purchase any one product.
I really do put a lot of care and thought into what I decide to purchase.

Jigboards by Jigthings
When you use a Jigboard to make your jigsaw puzzles will always keep your puzzles tidy and you’ll be able to easily move them from one place to another.
The jigboard has a raised edge around the board so that your puzzle pieces do not get knocked off and lost.
The JIGBOARD 2000 by Jigthings is the largest Jigboard in the range and it will accommodate most puzzles up to 2,000 pieces and jigsaw puzzles measuring up to 40.2 inches by 28.2 inches in size.
There is a soft fabric (much like what you would find on a pool table)that covers all surfaces of the Jigboard so that there is never any danger of the board scratching a table that it is rested upon.
You’ll find that the jigboard work surface is solid and a easy to work on.
The fact that the board is solid means that it can be supported on the smallest of tables and this makes it possible to do a jigsaw much larger than the table itself.
Each Jigboard comes complete with a Jigmat that combines together two different materials.
One side is the same soft fabric material that covers the board while the other side is waterproof plastic.
Normally, the Jigmat (plastic side up) completely covers the jigsaw when it is not being worked-on and thus protects the jigsaw puzzle from dust, spillages and the unwanted attention of pets!
However, many people like to use the jigmat with the soft fabric side up to store additional loose pieces.
Jigboards can be used for playing cards and other games as there is a raised edge so dice or other game pieces will not get lost while playing.
Jigboard comes in three other sizes as you’ll see below:
- Jigboard 500 (Suitable for most puzzles up to 500 pieces – up to 20.5 inches by 15.5 inches)
- Jigboard 1000 (Suitable for many 1000 piece puzzles – up to 25.5 inches by 20.5 inches)
- Jigboard 1500 (Suitable for most puzzles up to 1,500 pieces – up to 36 inches x 26 inches)

Jigsort Storage Cases by Jigthings
If you want to pack away your jigsaw puzzle the Jigboard is available as part of a complete kit known as “Jigsort” that is also sold on Amazon.
Jigsort allows a part-completed puzzle to be packed-away in seconds.
This is the second largest Jigsort in the Jigthings range.
It will accommodate many puzzles up to 1,000 pieces – sizes up 29.5 inches by 20.5 inches.
NOTE: However, some 1000 piece puzzles are larger than 29.5 by 20.5 so be sure to check the size of your puzzles before purchasing.
But to accommodate ALL conventional 1,000 piece puzzles Jigthings has come up with the Jigsort 1500.
The Jigsort case has a zipper to ensure that no pieces can be lost and an integrated, fully stitched handle (no rivets, screws or staples) enables you to safely transport your jigsaw from room to room, or place to place.
Jigsorts are the ultimate jigsaw puzzle management system.
The system is designed to make it quick and easy to pack away, carry and store your jigsaws; they are forever kept safe, neat and tidy.
Puzzle enthusiasts usually refer to Jigsorts as puzzle organizers because each one consists of three key elements as follows:
- firm “Construction Board” (a Jigboard made from rigid board not cardboard) on which the puzzle is made.
- there are 4 “Sort Trays” covered in soft fabric that provide a means to store the non-assembled pieces.
